I was looking over some practice tests and came across this question:
What is the scansion of the first four feet of "Atque haec impressō gemuit miseranda cubīlī"
Based on my knowledge, I got At / qu(e) haec / imp / res / ...
"At", "imp", and "res" each should be long by position and "qu(e) haec" has a dipthong, so I said that these are all long syllables.
The answer was apparently SSDD, which I think means long/long/short/short (correct me if I'm wrong)
Can somebody please explain what I did wrong here?
